The 2009 edition of the Statistical Abstract of the United States is now available from two sites:
- The 2009 Statistical Abstract. PDF and Excel
- Statistical Abstract of the United States, 2006-2009. PDF only.
It mystifies me that, with the problems of relying on proprietary formats and distributing data on CD-ROMs that became effectively unusable after a relatively short time, the Census Bureau is not making this essential publication available in a software neutral format such as CSV.
